1. SOUNDBITE (English) David Davis, Brexit Secretary:
"Well it's too early to say, I mean I'm having a bit of deja-vu here, in 2014 the poll forecast 315, not 314 and we ended up at 341. And one of the problems of overnight programmes like yours is that the early part of the evening tends to be Labour seats and the later part of the evening tends to be Conservative seats. So it's too early to tell, is the truth of the matter."
2. SOUNDBITE (English) David Davis, Brexit Secretary:
"What we said was that we wanted a mandate for the way we are approaching Brexit. If you remember in parliament the Labour Party was saying 'Well, we accept we are going to leave the European Union but not in this way', and part of this was... There were two aspects to this approach to Brexit, one was getting a mandate for the sort of Brexit we want, that protects us from House of Lords interference and those sort of things and the other one was to actually give time, two to three extra years to complete the process. Those arguments still apply."
Britain's Secretary in charge of exit talks with the European Union said despite the Conservative party's possible failure in getting a majority in Parliament, the country's approach to Brexit negotiations should remain the same.
British Prime Minister Theresa May's gamble in calling an early election appeared on Friday to have backfired spectacularly, after an exit poll suggested her Conservative Party could lose its majority in Parliament.
May had hoped the election would focus on Brexit, but that never happened, as both the Conservatives and Labour said they would respect voters' wishes and go through with the divorce.
